Salmonberry Trail meeting set August 4th

Grand Ronde, OR - The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency (STIA) will meet at Spirit Mountain Casino August 4th, 2017 to discuss issues related to ownership and management of the proposed 84 mile Salmonberry Trail corridor that will connect the cities of Tillamook and Banks. The meeting will be from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at Spirit Mountain Casino, 27100 SW Salmon River Highway, Grand Ronde, OR 97347.

The agenda includes an update on fundraising efforts, status of a proposed rail banking and lease agreement, and an update on Valley segment planning. The Salmonberry Trail will connect eight cities and two counties, passing by the Oregon coastline, fisheries, farmland and the rugged Oregon Coast Range. The route follows the Port of Tillamook Bay Railway, which closed in 2007 after massive storm damage. The Salmonberry Trail Intergovernmental Agency was established to promote and facilitate coordinated direction and guidance in the planning, development and maintenance of the multi-use trail.
